My Spring Hair Refresh

l'oreal colorista indigo hair

I don't know what it is about the clocks changing for Spring, but I always feel like making little changes myself too. As it marks the start of a new season, I almost like to see it as a Spring/Summer fresh start for me too. I find that this is the perfect time to change my hair colour and of course this year has been no different. 

I had been tempted to change my hair for a little while now, I just couldn't decide on the colour that I wanted. I popped into Boots recently and noticed L'Oreal's Colorista range on display. Once I spotted the Indigo shade, I knew that this was the colour that I wanted to go.

l'oreal colorista indigo hair review

I had been fading out the lilac for about 2 weeks now and it has been driving me mad. By the time it came to dying, my hair was a dirty white shade. Good for applying new colour, but bad for me as it just looked so dull and bland. I bleached and toned my roots and popped this dye straight on. When I washed it off, the result was so vibrant. It kind of looks like i've ombr├ęd parts of it as it switches from purple to electric blue. I think I might do a review post when it comes to re-dying, that way I can let you know on staying power and how it fades etc.

I am super happy with it, the photo's really don't do this colour justice. It's funny, how something so simple as to changing hair colour can act almost like a refresh button. I feel as though I am ready for the sunnier months now! 

The Colorista range is available from Boots and Superdrug.


  1. Oh my goodness!!! You look incredible! I would love to one day do something like this to my hair but settled for getting more than half my hair cut off hahah also, just found your blog on twitter and can't wait to read more :) Em xx

    1. Thank you so much! <3 oooh you are brave, I was so scared when I had mine cut off haha! Thank you for your comment lovely :)

  2. Ahhh this looks amazing! You look amazing! Suits you so well! I loved the look of this colour in the box too but I wasn't sure how it would apply to my hair as I don't bleach it or how long it would last. You look incredible tho, and I'd love to see a review later! Xx

    1. Thank you beautiful! It is still going strong, I am wondering if it will actually ever fade haha!

  3. Love it and it looks great on you! I'm glad it worked for you because I have seen some not so pleasant responses to the Colorista line! Would love to see how this holds over the coming weeks!
